Artira Stairlift

The Artira stairlift is an inclined platform lift for straight or curved Stairways.

The GSL Artira inclined platform wheelchair lift provides an ADA approved access solution for passengers in wheelchairs and those with limited mobility. This wheelchair lift is designed to fit your stairs and can accomodate turning stairways and intermediate landings. The Artira is ideal for providing ADA compliant accessibility in heritage buildings, schools, churches and restaurants. With the availability of many colors and finishes, you can be sure that the wheelchair lift will blend in with the building's decor. An Artira Wheelchair Lift platform folds up when not in use, requiring very little dedicated space.

Features of the GSL Artira Stairlift

Highlighted below are some of the many standard features of the GSL Artira wheelchair lift. For more extensive information, consult the Artira Design & Planning Guide or contact your local Garaventa Representative.

Call Stations

The Artira's Call Stations are operated by a computer based lift control system that intuitively guides the user through the operating sequence by illuminating the appropriate button to push. Fold and unfold functions are fully automated by simply pushing the easy to use call station buttons.

Drive System

The ultra-quiet Drive System is located at the upper end of the Artira and is available in two arrangements; the standard Drive Box and Compact Drive, both drive systems operate using Mains Power.

Curved Safety Arms

The Curved Safety Arms are fully automatic. When in the guarded position, the inside dimensions of the arms do not take away from the clear platform size of the wheelchair lift.

Platform Controls

The durable and vandal resistant platform control panel consists of two large illuminated Directional Control Buttons and an Emergency Stop Button.

Under Platform, Bi-directional and Leading Ramp Sensors

The sensors will automatically stop the lift if the platform should encounter an obstruction.

Smooth Start and Stop

The GSL Artira reduces the speed of travel by 50% prior to reaching corners and is programmed to slow the platform travel speed when approaching or departing the landings.

Pedestrian Safety Lights

This illuminated tube lighting is located at the base of the ramps visually alerting pedestrians of the platform's location during travel.

Emergency Stop Button

When pushed this large red button will immediately stop the lift.


The Artira is finished in a durable polyester powder paint coating that is electrostatically applied and baked. Garaventa's standard color is Satin Grey (fine textured).
